Album Review from Blues In Britain Magazine

Paul Jones
“One of the things that interests me about Rebecca Downes us that she has a whole range of what she can do with her voice. She tends to come across maybe live as mostly a big belter – yes she’s got that – but she’s got lots of subtlety as well. That particular track (Night Train) was an interesting example of her ranging between the two. I’ll be returning the new album definitely”
